Goose Festival – Bettona
From July 27th to August 5th: food stands with dishes and recipes based on goose meat
The 36th edition of the Goose Festival is held from Friday July 27th to Sunday August 5th in the beautiful Medieval village of Bettona, near Perugia.
During the festival several food stands propose typical plates based on goose: gnocchi (type of pasta made with potatoes) with goose sauce, roasted goose, goose roast beef, arrosticini, penne alla norcina, etc.
Like in many festivals, also at the Goose Festival a small market of antiques, craftmanship and model building is set up at the main square of the town.
Every evening there are shows, dances and live concerts.
For the occasion the Museum of Bettona can be visited until late night.
The event is organized by ProLoco of Bettona (tel. +39 075 9975643)
Bettona is defined as the “balcony towards Umbria”, for its balconies with beautiful views on Umbria’s valley. It is characterized by extraordinary alleys and Medieval city walls that recalls the history of the town like the old battles and cloisters.
If you love particular traditional food, after this one in Bettona you can also go to the Snail Festival in Lacugnano, near Perugia, which is held in the same dates (July 27th – August 5th).
